Moneyfields 3-0 Sholing

Daniel Nlewedim had put the home team 2 up just before the half hour mark. There was a chance for Sholing to get back into it on 38 mins when Dan Mason was fouled in the box, but his spot kick was saved, to make it 3 out of 3 unsuccessful penalties this season for the Boatmen - Report
Sholing 1-2 Brockenhurst
Boatmen fell to our 3rd league defeat of the season to a lively Brock side, who defended well and took their chances. Speechley-Price opened the scoring on 18 mins with a shot on the turn. Sholing's best chance in 1st half to draw level fell to Dan Mason, but he volleyed wide from inside the 6 yard box. Sholing dominated the start of the second half and got our reward on 67 mins when Jamie Bulpitt hooked a shot into the far corner. Brock quickly retook the lead when Sheedy's shot took a deflection past Gosney. With 8 mins to go, we were awarded a penalty when a handball on the line also saw a red card, but Barry Mason's penalty was saved to cap a game to forget for the Boatmen - Match Report & Photos
Totton & Eling 1-4 Sholing
Boatmen started our defence of the Wessex League Cup with a comfortable win in a game played in atrocious conditions. Zac Mouland opened the scoring on 25 mins, turning & shooting low past the keeper from Kelly's cross. Was one way traffic in the first half, but Sholing couldn't add to their lead until 62 mins when Owen Royl's 25 yard shot evaded the keeper. A minute later, Alex Sawyer guided in a pin point cross from Mouland. Sawyer grabbed his second on 73 mins, scoring from the edge of the area. T&E grabbed a consolation on 77 mins, with Liam Mears perhaps scoring the goal of the game after a mazy dribble - Match Report
Sholing 2-0 Alresford Town
Boatmen got back to winning ways with an excellent team performance to gain some revenge for the earlier FA Cup defeat by Alresford. This time, the visitors were no match for a hungry Sholing side, who created many chances and held firm in defence. Breakthrough came on 42 mins when a Hubbard corner found its way to Dan Miller at the far post to prod in. Miller would go close 3 more times, including hitting the bar. Sholing wrapped up the victory on 79 mins when in his 350th appearance for the club, Lee Wort raced through, went past the keeper, checked back and smashed the ball home from 16 yards - Match Report & Photos
Blackfield & Langley 2-0 Sholing
Top of the Table Watersiders, were too strong for a Boatmen side missing 5 first team players. The home side got a lucky opening goal on 14 mins when a miss-hit shot that was heading wide deflected off White and spun into the bottom corner. Boatmen should have had a penalty soon after when Bulpitt was brought down from behind, but not given. In the second half, Sholing looked better with the pace of Ramdin & Hoole running at the defence, but late on, Blackfield broke away down the right wing and a cross found White to finish - Match Report & Photos
